The best burger in France!

Le Bar Bu Burger

Le Bar Bu Burger, Marseilles

Although France is well known for it’s pastries, wine and cheese (all of which are fantastic also), a little known treasure is the fantastic selections of burgers which Marseilles has to offer. I visited Le Bar Bu on the Cours Estienne d’Orves, recommended by a friend as being the “best burger place in all of France” and I was not disappointed! They have a large menu, filled with burgers named after famous characters such as Chuck Norris and other personalities, as well as an amazing fried Mac and Cheese. If you like a cocktail, this restaurant has an extensive cocktail menu made by friendly bartenders. Mine had a handlebar moustache, I’m still not sure if it was done ironically or he was portraying the vintage style french man of the old movies. Hmmm…

For breakfast in Marseilles I would recommend either buying fresh pastries from the local Boulangerie with some orange juice or coffee and enjoying a leisurely breakfast at your apartment or hotel, or going to a local Cafe. But if you’re looking for a Full English you’ll have a hard time finding them as many cafe’s in this area tend to serve the typical french breakfast of pastries and juice, with few offering a full cooked breakfast as we are used to. That’s one way to keep off the calories.
